I am told that the report on a possible Town Green in front of Willesden Green Library Centre will take longer than anticipated. There has always been a suspicion that the entire request is merely vexatious, and an attempt to delay the rebuild of Willesden Green Library Centre. Certainly, the accounts I have heard of some of the testimony given at the enquiry would cohere with that notion.
The history of this post is an odd one. When published it attracted little attention. Then on Friday 8 March it suddenly started to get lots of views and comments. The comments have two main concerns. One is to rehash the planning issues. The Planning Committee made its decision, which I thought sensible, so I am not going to go over it again. The second is the suspicion that many of the objectors are just trying use a legal technicality to delay things. I have certainly heard that suspicion voiced by various people. Anyone who believes in freedom of speech should not object to it being mentioned just because they disagree.
A commentator has correctly pointed out that I did not publish his post, although I published all the others. This is so. The reason is that I considered that the post contained a libel.
